Yes- that is the way they spell it. Edited in Lightroom Camera Raw (my first attempt at using it)and then added text in Photoshop. The white around the elephant is caused by dust he is throwing on himself.

If this isn't a top 10 photo I'll seriously consider not renewing my membership when it's due. Very professional work you have here!

Lots of San Diego Zoo entries, but it is about the best zoo there is. I'm going to have to see the new exhibit. Nice capture of the elephant in action surrounded by dust.

I so love it when they do that throwing the dirt on their back thing. Here it makes it look so real like it is in the wild. Great job.

Love the dust in the bg, really adds impact to the shot. WOuld be nice to have the branch in focus too, but at least the elephant is, and (s)he is what's important. 7
